MORE than 250 people in WGC and Hatfield have been caught watching TV without a licence in the first six months of 2009.
Figures released by TV Licensing show 214,000 people across the UK had dodged paying the �142.50 bill.
These include 143 in Hatfield and 108 in WGC.
TV Licensing spokeswoman Joanna Pearce said: "These figures show our continued effectiveness in catching people who watch TV illegally and therefore penalise the honest majority who do pay.
"While evaders come from all income groups, we understand that in the current economic climate some people may find it difficult to pay their licence fee in one go."
She added there were numerous ways to spread the cost, such as monthly direct debit or a weekly cash payment plan.
